Experience installation
An installation during Dubai Design Week that is purely focused on the experience when you combine sound scent and imagery together. By using these different senses in a simplistic way in our spatial design we are creating awareness of how we experience a space. In three stages; Nostalgia, Change & Future we will create a vision a feeling that will provoke a certain emotion, which can be different for each and every person.
